Notes From the Field: Christina Reagan '19

Christina Reagan '19 interned at JustLeadershipUSA, a non-profit advocacy organization fighting for criminal justice reform, during the 2018 Summer Term. The following is an excerpt from her internship report.

This summer, I was a policy and advocacy intern at JustLeadershipUSA in New York City. JustLeadershipUSA is a non-profit advocacy organization fighting for criminal justice reform on a local, state, and national level. They are comprised of three different pillars—Membership, with the goal of enrolling all incarcerated people in the US as members; Leadership, with the goal of training formerly incarcerated people and lifting up their voices as leaders in the fight against mass incarceration; and lastly, Advocacy, which is made up of campaigns to change the policies that affect communities impacted by mass incarceration.
